Your Cohort Experience
Ask any Smith EMBA alumnus what they value most from the program and they’ll mention the faculty, the coursework and the executive coaching. But undoubtedly the most important aspect of the EMBA experience is “the cohort.”
In the Smith EMBA program, you’ll join a cohort of 30-40 executives on a journey of knowledge acquisition and personal growth.
The 18-month program builds on class meetings four days a month, from Thursday to Sunday, at UIBE Beijing campus, concludes with a Residency week & Graduation held at the University of Maryland campus and in Washington D.C.
The bonds you create with your classmates in the classroom, during team sessions, and at study groups will be a key part of what you take away. After you graduate, you will rely on your classmates—as well as faculty—for help in applying these concepts in your new world. The cohort experience creates a rich environment for learning—and for life.
